About This Event
If you are feeling disconnected from yourself and your environment, maybe it is time to reconnect through immersion in deep healing. Return to the foundations of experience. Be one with nature. Reset your energy. Relax + release what no longer serves you.
Join Reiki Masters + Shamanic Practitioners Rev. Jeep Ries and Enya Latham for four days of deep healing in the western mountains of Maine. Each day you will receive healing energy from some of the following: Reiki, crystals, singing bowls, shamanic journey, chakra alignments, ceremony/circle, drumming, forest bathing, waterfall swimming and more. This is a healing immersion retreat and an opportunity to shake off what is weighing you down. Remember your luminous self!
This year at Tourmaline Center we are exploring our relationship with the land and how we can work with the land to heal ourselves and build a more intimate relationship with our environment. We will be foraging in the forest, practicing awareness (forest bathing!), harvesting from Enya’s organic garden, cooking amazing seasonal, local, plant based foods, swimming in waterfalls, practicing yoga, hiking mountains and preparing healing herbal concoctions. Each retreat is designed to heal, instruct and integrate daily through experiences in nature. All retreats take place at our humble off-grid center and conventional production kitchen in the western mountains of Maine.

Venue HighlightsTourmaline Center is located in the western mountains of Maine. We are a four hour drive from Boston. The center is rustic and off grid providing a venue that is well integrated with the natural environment. We are 20 minutes from the Appalachian Trail, near multiple mountain day hikes, less than an hour from many waterfalls + swimming holes, and far from city lights for awesome stargazing.
AccommodationsTourmaline Center is an off-grid rustic cottage on 40 acres. Our sleeping accommodations include a loft in the main cottage (must climb ladder), two tiny sleeping huts with platform beds and bedrolls, one large tent with three cots (shared), one medium tent with two cots. there is no running water onsite. There are two composting toilets and a few solar lights. Solar shower bladders are available to guests.
Airbnb has many vacation rentals in the area, Kawanhee Inn has luxury lodging available. Mt Blue State Park has camping with full facilities. There is a chance that a cabin on nearby Webb Lake will be available for this retreat with private rooms for four people, electricity and running hot water. Inquire with Enya personally for this option.
Menu/CuisineMeals at the center are plant based with a focus on local and seasonal foods. We can accommodate a wide range of dietary restrictions with notification of dietary needs.
Breakfast for all guests includes homemade muesli with dried fruits + nuts, alternative milks, fresh fruit, and fresh eggs. Breakfast on the last day will be specialty pancakes with local maple syrup and fresh fruit. Coffee, teas, chaga kombucha and other healthy elixirs.
Lunch for all guests includes a selection of salads - one grain, one legume/bean and one vegetable salad will be offered.
Dinners will be dictated by what is seasonally available. For years Enya has been hosting garden dinner parties where guests arrive, harvest vegetables from the garden and then each prepare a dish from the harvested foods. Dinner will be akin to this with optional participation from guests. Dinner will be provided for all regardless of their participation in the preparation of the meal. Some of our favorite dishes are grilled ratatouille, handmade flat breads, chilled soups, lemon + borage zucchini, roasted pepper + purslane tamales, stuffed zucchini flowers, sauteed beans with toasted (contact info blocked) love to cook straight from the garden!
